Also stuck in a jobber role in JWA at the moment, eager to travel. Uses a Missile Dropkick as his finisher, which is pretty impressive for a guy his size.
Akira Nogami: 5'11" 200 pounds Charismatic and athletic young wrestler who is also stuck at the bottom of the loaded JPW roster. A good choice if you want to add some juniors-style action to your roster. Uses various STF variations, adopted from the next guy on this list, as finishers.TRADED TO Smoky Mountain Wrestling, April through June
Masa Chono: 6'1" 212 pounds Needs no introduction, hopefully... but keep in mind that this is the young Chono. Uses the STF and Kenka Kick as finishers. Very charismatic, and still athletic at this point in his career. Could be good in a team with Akira Nogami, or on his own. - Please note that Masa Chono has been booked in the Rougeau Cup tournament from April 28-30 and will not be available on those dates.
Toshiaki Kawada, Samson Fuyuki, and Yoshinari Ogawa: (only available as a group this quarter) - Three young boys from the All Japan Dojo with enough experience and talent to match up with any athletic young team and enough toughness to face down any bad-ass team in North America. Kawada is of course already on his way to becoming one of the Greatest of All Time. Fuyuki was his regular tag partner in the 1980s (their team was called "Footloose").Ogawa was Tenryu's protege at this time. Earned the right to go to CMLL for an extended tour.
